======Weekly Reflection: Wiki Edition======

One thing I really love about working with the wikis is the amount of extra work you have to put into the formatting. I like things to look neat and organized. I'm //that// person Morgan mentioned that would go through and put in bullet points, synchronize headings and fix the mis-spellings. I can't keep my dorm room neat and organized so I have to make up for it in other ways (i.e. my lecture notes and my technological recordings).

Here is a link to my favorite digital artifacts regarding the future of blogging: [[http://dfbierbrauer.wordpress.com/2013/02/26/the-top-four-time-to-pick-favorites/ | The top four: time to pick favorites]] I really loved looking at everyone's different ideas for the future. I know [[http://banjosinbackseats.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/check-it-out-timeline-about-blogs/
| Matt]] mentioned Facebook taking over (which I wouldn't be surprised).

So, this week we looked at a couple of articles pertaining to wikis I didn't put my notes on the wiki but I did use the readings as a basis for my discussion of "Thread Mode" on the SecretMediaRevolution page (started by JoeStusynski and expanded by LeahFleming). I then did a little more adventuring about the Weblogs and Wikis hyperlinks and I found a page that hadn't been created yet titled TheMemex. It sounded interesting so I did a little digging and found out quite a few interesting factoids. You should really check it out: it's basically Google before the internet.

I am also going to point out that my work has officially been used outside the Weblogs and Wikis community. I guess I started saying things people actually found interesting. (This doesn't usually happen to me so just let me have my moment.)

One thing I'm trying to figure out is how to put in image captions on the wiki. I looked all over but I must have missed something because I couldn't find the answer anywhere. Goal for next week: FIGURE OUT CAPTIONS.
